Jane's Jottings

Where does the time go?

Since I last got in touch, Bill and I have been to Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate, survived the snowy weather and repacked the car again the following week to attend the Christmas Lace Fair in Solihull. That we have been doing too much is an understatement to say the least.

I have my last event of the year here this next Saturday when I have my Stitching Day here at Pinks Barn. Lovely Mulled wine and the best local sausages you have ever tasted! It is possible that we will need to stitch with our gloves on but I hope not.

Issue 83 of Stitch That will be winging its way to you (all of you who are Members) next week and I hope you enjoy it. We certainly enjoyed putting it together for you. As you can imagine I am up to my ears in Issue 84 and 85 – there is no end to it……..

By the time we reach the New Year, I should have some pictures of next year’s re-subscription gift – an idea from a member and a very good one..You will have to watch this space.

Nordic Beaded Biscornu

There are lots of new ideas coming up but here are a couple just to tempt you.  I have given in and I am starting a series of Biscornu – the funny quirky shape pincushions you see all over the place. This festive one  Nordic Beaded Biscornu above started as a Hardanger class at Pinks Barn and the Violet and Pansy design below is one of a series of four to be completed shortly.  The series will include Buttercups and Daisies, Strawberries, Violets and Pansies and Roses.

You can click on these links and you will be whisked to the shop – it all amazes me!

Violet and Pansy Biscornu

They are so cute. Why is there so much housework to do at the moment?

I must admit to discussing retirement and also saying that I thought at this rate
I was unlikely to be able to retire in the near future. There is so much to do and so littke time!
